It all started when I was her. A three-year old, deep-thinking philosopher. I over-analyzed everything... and I still do. My parent's were both public educators who devoted much more to their job than ever required. If you're not a teacher or the child of a teacher, it's truly hard for me to explain to you just what all our public educators do. They ALWAYS brought their work home with them. A planning period was never enough time to get everything done that they needed to. I used to lay in the living room floor every Sunday night with my Dad as he worked on his lesson plans for the week. It all started then. Before I could even read and write I was a planner.
Last January when I started on my New Year's Resolutions I planned to blog more. Then, my birthday rolled around mid-summer and I realized I hadn't posted more than a handful of times. This year my New Year's Resolutions are to basically live a better life. In my mind, that includes doing more of what I enjoy (blogging included), exercising more and studying the bible on a regular basis. I decided if I am really going to tackle this blogging thing I'm going to have to have a plan. The more thought I put into it... the more I realized that I'm not alone. I was sure there had to be tons of 'bloggers' out there who had the same plans for the new year. Being the planner I am... I planned.
I wanted to involve more people so I made a Journal Agenda with writing prompts for each week of 2013 and introduced it to my FOLK Family. Each Monday I will be blogging over on the FOLKblog with the entry that corresponds to the prompt of the week. Each post will include a Linky Party for bloggers to link-up their own posts in response to the prompt. A community journaling/blogging project. This should be fun!
January's Journal Agenda prompts are as follows:
The first entry is live and there are several bloggers already linked-up. Join me!
